      It says part 2, so I figured that she took it already

    I disagree that object oriented is that important. I feel you can learn most of those concepts on the fly compared to the other top results here.

    • A four year degree worth of bad habits is hard to break. Definitely disagree. Without OO understanding it’s unlikely they will have developed anything in school that will scale out in maintainability. That’s a huge program for most college students already imo, every project is small and throw away.

      OP
      I am familiar with the hiring process for SWE at Google, but not every other company. What's wrong with surveying for broader representative coverage?

    None is more important than others. The reason college cs degrees are credible is because you do all of these, just doing one won’t be enough
